Setting up DreamStation with F&P Simplus mask question
Great resource here and happy to be participating!

Just got a new DreamStation Auto CPAP and I am unsure of the "Tube Type" setting to use for a F&P Simplus Full Face mask. I know the AirFit N10 was a type "X2" but I am hoping someone can let me know the correct setting for the Simplus so I don't mess this up Smile

Thanks,
Graham

Welcome, Graham.

This link takes you to the Mask settings for the Philips Respironics System One machine. It indicates that all full face masks are set to X1.

It has been my experience with the Respironics full face masks I have trialed and/or purchased for use with my DreamStation, the mask setting has always been X1 as well. Any Respironics mask you purchase will have the resistance setting listed on the package. If purchasing another brand, X1 should work for.

Good luck with your treatment.

Best regards,

I use FlashPAP to load data from a FlashAir III wifi sd card in my machine to my computer and display it with SleepyHead .
